      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As a degree apprentice I have received a lot of help from those around me when it comes to completing my studies and assisting if I need help with project work.

      Cons

      The placements that I have been put on rotate every 6 months. In the 3 years I have worked here I have done 1 software based task. The rest has been document creation, testing (step-by-step), or excel sheet based tasks. I have learnt nothing as far as software development goes.
